Blackpeak Station, Holly Ford

A compelling rural romance set in the rugged high country of New Zealand's South Island.

Four generations of the Black family have farmed Blackpeak Station. Next in line, or so she believes, is Charlotte Black, stubborn as rock and unbiddable as the weather. But standing in her way are 150 years of tradition, an older brother, and a father who believes that daughters run families, not farms.

To make her childhood dream of owning the family property come true, she'll have to be as tough as the mountains themselves. There can be no room for romance in Charlotte's life. Or so she thinks, until it arrives at her door. Can she have both love and land, or must she choose? Can Charlotte learn to trust her heart?

"With rural romance as a strong genre at present this is a worthy addition to the bookshelf and a great read to curl up with as the autumn chill arrives." - Latitude Magazine

"Blackpeak Station is a great read. it has a strong storyline, excellent flow, lots of 'almost' local pillars and landmarks. Well worth the recommended . . . retail price." - Jacquie Webby, Oamaru Mail

"Nice to see a strong Kiwi heroine sticking to her guns and fighting for what she wants." - Shandelle Battersby, Weekend Herald

"There is a real feel of New Zealand about this story which gives the whole book a genuine feel and it is a good story of ambition over tradition." - Gisborne Herald

"Blackpeak Station is an easy read with likeable characters and a decent plot . . . While it is touted as a romance, author Holly Ford does a great job at chronicling the highs and lows, lives and losses of a farming family struggling to ensure the station's future viability . . . a great escapist read for a rainy afternoon." - Rebekah Fraser, Greymouth Evening Star

"Blackpeak Station is a celebration, in a sense, of high country life, and all its beauty and splendour. It has been sympathetically written to convey authentically the setting, the characters and relationships, and the challenges of living in this remote part of New Zealand. The story is engaging, the characters true, and the setting beautifully realised. If you think this is just another romance, think again as there are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Blackpeak Station is contemporary, it is well written and gambols along at a pace to keep you hooked. It is, as they say, a really good yarn." - Wendy A. Mill, Daily News, New Plymouth Taranaki
